TRULY, MADLY: A Lucy Valentine Novel - Heather Webber

From the back of the book: Have any plans for Valentine's Day? Well, have I got a match for you! Her name is Lucy--Lucy Valentine--and she's so fresh, funny, and fabulously original, she just might give flowers and chocolate a run for their money.
Lucy hails from a long line of matchmakers known as Valentine, Inc. According to family legend, the Valentines have been blessed by Cupid with the psychic ability to help couples find true love. Trouble is, Lucy's powers were zapped away by an electrical surge and now all she can do is find lost objects. What good is that in the matchmaking world? You'd be surprised. In a big city like Boston, love is a mystery--and Lucy's upstairs neighbor, Sean Donahue, is a hot private eye whose job is murder. With a little luck, she can help solve the perfect crime and find her own perfct match--with Sean.
Filled with romance, a little mystery and a whole lot of fun, TRULY, MADLY is the perfect gift for readers looking for something truly special. Author Heather Webber has a smart, sexy, engaging voice that reminds us of Janet Evanovich and Jennifer Crusie, but with an irresistable touch of the paranormal. Everyone here at St Martin's has already fallen head over heels in love with Lucy. And with two more books to come--at least--we think this could be a match made in heaven.

I received this SWEEEEET funny book as an ARC from Goodreads and I am so glad I did! It took me a month from receipt to read it. I tend to shy away from romance books, but this one has been getting rave reviews from 'trusted agents' and it had that paranormal and mystery I love so well....I caved (glad I did) and read it rather quickly. I stayed up late to read 'just one more page'! A danger book in that sense.
Wonderfully funny, a little wacky, some hot romance without making me avert my eyes, nifty dialogue and a really intriguing mystery with a neat little twist towards the end that had me wishing for the next in the series to come out soonest.
TRULY, MADLY comes out next month and you definitely should get this little gem.
Five SWEEEEET beans......
